Ben Askren vs Jay Hieron Title Fight, Taking Place at Mizzou?
Bellator officials are still having hurdles on to where and when to kick off the welterweight title match between Ben Askren and Jay Hieron.
Bellator officials are close to naming a date and venue for the welterweight title match between Ben Askren and Jay Hieron. The said tournament could possibly take place at the University of Missouri. However, Bellator CEO – Bjorn Rebney – recently said that there could be hurdles.
“It really just boils down to whether or not Mizzou has the availability and the venue. I think it’s the kind of show in that market with its attachment to wrestling, it could do spectacular. Obviously, there would be tremendous, over-the-top support for Ben. But it’s just finding a date there.”
Bjorn Rebney also added that an October 8 date for Bellator 53 isn’t happening. Moreover, the CEO added that the event might be needed to take place elsewhere.
